About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12

South Lake Commons is a fantastic, activity-filled home with a game room, enclosed yard, private hot tub, and room for 12 guests (and your dogs, for a small nightly fee)!

Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, this family home is about four miles from Heavenly Mountain Resort, and even closer to a public beach and family-friendly attractions like mini golf.

At home, there's just as much fun to be had! In the cozy game room you'll have a pool table, comfy sofas, and a TV. Plus, you have board games stored in the dining room.

While some guests are participating in a game of cards, others can lounge on the L-shaped couch complete with cup holders. There's a pellet stove for a cozy atmosphere and a 54-inch flatscreen TV with DVD and cable for entertainment. Meanwhile, the kids can run around in the fenced-in backyard and if you brought your dogs, they can blow off some steam.

Beside the living room is a dorm-like bunk room with two full-twin sets, en suite bathroom, a second pellet fireplace, and a small library on the mantel to inspire a quiet evening. Upstairs are three more bedrooms - two with queen beds and one with a full. Two more bathrooms are found on the upper level, too.

Dining will be delightful with a meal made in the fully stocked kitchen that includes a coffee grinder.

If you can get yourself away from the house, there are tons of things to do within a few miles. Nearby you'll find many restaurants in South Lake Tahoe proper, Magic Carpet Miniature, and Bijou Golf Course. Take a walk to Thomas F. Regan Memorial City Beach or a short drive to Heavenly Mountain Ski Resort and Heavenly Village.

For your yearly family reunion, consider staying at this South Lake Tahoe vacation rental!

About Vacasa of Lake Tahoe

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Mice & Nails!! The manager interrupted our vacation on 3 occasions a 4th occasion by an employee.

  • 1 of 5

I am extremely disappointed with this property. I booked it back in March 2017 and the reviews were ok. I didn't anything that would prepare us for how we found the property.

We rented it for 3 nights.

1)At about 4pm on day of check in, I received a call from I believe to be the property manager, asking what time I would arrive because they wanted to change the curtains. All that should have been done ahead of time. I opted to keep the blinds as is, they were missing some vertical blinds in the living room.

2) the property manager still showed up to the property not to change the blinds but to "sweep" the porch that was full of " pollen". I felt like she was " checking us out" and felt very violated by her un expected visit. This too should have been done prior to our arrival.

3) At about 8:20 pm we opened up a kitchen drawer and found mice droppings in it where the kitchen utencils were kept and in a second drawer where the kitchen towels were kept.

This is the most unsanitary and unhealthy situation I have ever encountered at any place I have ever rented.

I called VCASA and the property manager did not get back to me until the next morning.

I went back to the vacation rental website to see if there had been any new reviews since I last checked in March 2017.In April, there was a review concerning the mice and droppings. This infuriated me, these people had 2 months to get the mice under control and they did nothing about it. They can put down all the traps they want, but if they are not looking into where they're coming from how do they really expect to resolve the issue?! We had 4 children with us, and I was so nervous that they would get sick, or get hurt.

The manager again showed up to clean the drawers and set mice traps and mice deterrent. We were not happy and are still unhappy.

4) It looked like the deck was recently done outside and they left their wood scaps on the side of the porch with nails sticking out, another hazard.

5) It also looked like the electrical box to the hot tub was knew and my guess is, it might have caught fire because the window closest to it looked burnt.

6) We had to park one of our cars in the garage, and the garage door did not open electronically, you had to manually open and close it.

This by far has been the worst property my family and I have ever rented, and worse experience ever. I would have given it 0 stars but that's not an options. I am requesting a refund!!

Read the other reviews and believe them, they are true.

Our group had issues with a non-working hot tub, a non-working clothes dryer, and mice inside the home. None of which were remedied by the end of our week long trip.

I consistently had to follow up with communication from my end, never hearing back unless I called back to follow up.

Owner's Response: The hot tub for this home was repaired during this reservation, and the dryer has since been replaced. The Property Manager did stop by this home to assist the guests, but they were out for the day. We apologize for any disappointments this guest experienced during their stay.

Infested with mice

  • 1 of 5

There is a mouse trap ready for you under sink. You will hear the mice at night. They will get into your food and their poop pellets will remain. Asked for compensation or exterminator and no Vacasa response or manager response. The house needs serious patch work to prevent mice. The stove exhaust is completely open and a mice highway into the kitchen.
